I, for one, would not have managed the transition from Slack 11 via current to Slack 12 without reference to your indispensable notes.

My sincere thanks to you and all others.
Thanks, and while I do see your point, I'm not being modest when I say that my contributions are minimal in comparison to some of the other guys (especially Eric). He and I are generally more visible in this part of the community since we post pretty frequently though - that much I'll admit :-)

All things considered, I (and I think I can speak for Eric and the others on this, so *we*) appreciate the kind words and feedback - thanks for helping to make it fun for us :-)

This is probably obvious, but using "su -" to switch to root is probably better than using "su". If you set a umask in ~/.bash_profile and use "su", the altered umask will still be used and could bork up your system when you install the package (not that I know from experience or anything...heh heh...). Of course, once this happens, the fixing of your system is as easy as rebuilding the package from source using the right umask (by using "su -") and installing that package after having removed the old one, but still...being locked out of your user account is never fun.
